For the millionth time-ASSIMILATION

Well it happened again.  NYC was attacked by a terrorist who associated himself with ISIS.  This time a rented vehicle was the weapon of choice.  This time 8 people died and 11 or 12 were injured.  Yet the democratic and liberal party want to continue to blame America for the terrorist ideologies.  This person entered America in 2010 under the lottery policy within the American immigration system.  I have no doubt that some “vetting” was done, obviously not enough but some.  So I have to give the benefit of the doubt that perhaps this individual came to America without the intent to harm Americans.  However, the reason I believe he came to the decision to harm Americans was because he didn’t become American after arriving here and living here. Instead the Sharia Law was still in his life through his faith, his community and in his personal life.  Perhaps through using social media and watching videos over the Internet the country he left and obviously missed made a hatred grow inside of him for the country that gave him a new opportunity.  Yet this country  didn’t actually give him a new way to live.  Perhaps if America were no longer afraid and ashamed of itself this immigrant from the Middle East or Asia even, could have had the same chance and opening to come to love and appreciate America as most Americans do.

Our ancestors, some of our parents and grandparents had an entirely different experience when they arrived on our shores through sponsorship.  When they came they were encouraged to adapt to America’s ways of life, to speak and write English (the “common” language of this country) in much of the societal places,  to keep their religion and languages in their places of worship and their homes and in the similar communities they shopped in.  If they responded by learning to respect and honor the new country they came to then in return they would be rewarded through life with privileges and rights not found in their homelands. They would be able to get ahead if they wished to by working hard and earning more.  It was their choices to make as an assimilated American.  That all changed in the 1960’s.  That is when immigration policies under democratic control began to make the  changes in policy that still affects the rest of America today.  Those are the policies still in place along with others that say,

“Nah, you can live in this country, but don’t worry you don’t have to assimilate, you can bring your culture fully into this land and so what if with so many different cultures we as Americans lose our own culture that was established with the Founding Fathers.”

Which brings us through the years of non-assimilation to yesterday when another terror attack cost people their lives.  What is it going to take before the American democrats and liberals realize that non-assimilation leads to isolation for the immigrant that comes here looking for a better life?  By isolating immigrants and forcing them to continue believing in the ways that they recently left would be the beginning of the end of American culture.  It is the soul of immigrants and their longing for the ideals that the American culture offered to them that made America great.  The only way America remains a viable country is if the people who make her a country, assimilate to her laws, customs and practices. The way to keep America safe, prosperous and helping the world is to allow her to teach the immigrants who come here a new way to live.  Without giving immigrants that choice all you get are breeding grounds for the evil around the world, and the connection the immigrant longs for is found through terrorists’ ideologies and negative views about their “adopted” country.  Why is it so hard for democrats and liberals to see that?

Assimilation creates new communities where diversity can thrive.  Where one culture learns about another, where one religion learns about another, where people United by a common language and a common ideal with appreciation and respect can build a better country than the one that existed yesterday.  It has been done before with mistakes.  So why not try it again without the mistakes this time?  Let’s make assimilation the major course in the first step taken toward a better life for every immigrant.  Let us stop growing immigrants into becoming terrorists because of loneliness and isolation.  Let’s call on our reprentatives in the House and Senate to stand up and allow true assimilation the job it was meant to do — create new Americans.

And that is The Way I See It Here in Jackson.

This land is your land this land is my land

As an average, American born woman I've decided to write and share my thoughts and beliefs in a blog. This blog will be very simple and hopefully click with the rest of the people out there, who feel as I do, but just can't express it with words, on a variety of subjects. I'm not a researcher. I'm not a scholar. I'm not anything other than an average American who has opinions about a multitude of issues and I'm tired of holding them inside myself and bending the ears of my family and close personal friends. I'm not claiming I'll always get it "right". I'm not claiming any political or religious affiliations. What I am claiming is my privilege as an American to exude free speech. I will be honest, straightforward and probably extremely wordy. At times I may share my own photos or my own recipes or just my own gripes, but most times I will attempt to share how my peers feel about current issues and why my generation of friends and acquaintances can't grasp society's lack of common sense today. I may unintentionally offend people, I will absolutely make mistakes and errors because I am first and foremost a human being and we all know no one is perfect. I most likely will never have facts and figures and I mean NEVER. This blog will totally express how I see things and I expect there will be plenty of counter opinions and possible argumentative theories about what I will express so I will respect that and accept it as my risk for writing this blog. Just having the option in this great country of ours to create a blog, is to me a privilege I would defend to the end!

Won't you tell me what you think?
